The BRIT Awards 2017: Who’s performing?
The 37th BRIT Awards airs this evening and this year’s show promises some exciting performances from big-name artists.
Tonight, hosts Emma Willis and Dermot O’Leary will be taking the stage to celebrate the very best of British music.
The nomination list includes some pretty tough competition this time around, with Beyoncé facing Rihanna in a battle for Best International Female Solo Artist and Radiohead taking on X Factor girl group Little Mix for Best British Group.
Not only will viewers see the BRIT winners revealed, but the ceremony will also include a number of performances from some of the most popular artists in the industry.
The most talked about name on the line-up is “Roar” singer Katy Perry, who will be appearing to make her first UK television performance in three years. Katy will take the stage to unveil her new single “Chained To The Rhythm” to British audiences, following her debut performance at the Grammys.
The pop star spoke ahead of the ceremony about her upcoming appearance: “I’m excited to come back to one of my favourite countries, where most of my favourite musical influences come from.
“After three years, I’m excited to return to the BRITs stage to kick off a new era of purposeful pop.”
And, as if Ed wasn’t enough already, the star also revealed that a mystery guest will be joining him on the stage. He told Nick Grimshaw in a recent interview: “It’s something that I think nobody is expecting. I think it’ll be decent. I’ve managed to keep it secret up until now, which is good. But tomorrow night, I think we’re the penultimate act.”
The BRIT Awards airs live tonight (Wednesday 22nd February) at 7:30pm on ITV.
